Orient Thai Airlines is citing Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC)'s inability to deliver the first of a planned fleet of up to 24 Sukhoi SSJ-100 Superjets before 2015-16, for its decision to cancel these plans, in favour of acquiring more Boeing 737s. The carrier now intends to acquire nine Boeing 737-400s, to take its 737 fleet to 12, including three, winglet equipped 737-300s, by the end of 2012. The carrier is reported to have four remaining active MD80 series aircraft, plus one spare out of a fleet of 11.
